This study compares percent cover of benthic organisms at the species level at Pearl and Hermes
Atoll (PHA), the largest atoll in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, in order to determine 1) the
degree of difference among sites, 2) whether wave exposure zones explain observed patterns in
benthic community structure, and...
The relative contributions of sea level rise (SLR) and increasing extra-tropical
storminess to the frequency with which waves attack coastal features is assessed with a simple
total water level (TWL) model. For the coast of the U.S. Pacific Northwest (PNW) over the
period of wave-buoy observations (~30 years) wave height...
